Greatest Disco Songs


The Top Ten

1 I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

it is the only good one

The best disco song for me. Has been my number 1 for the past 24 years.

I will survive will survive for another century. That sing is awesome. Gotta love it.

Great track!

3 I Feel Love - Donna Summer

This song now going on 35 years old, is STILL years ahead of itself! This classic defines excellent club/disco/dance music! The fact that it is performed by The Queen Of Disco, makes "I Feel Love", the obvious winner of this category!

The only, the best and the true queen DONNA I LOVE since my first days

Should be among the top 10. Excellent example of pure European disco sound.

Donna Summer is the Disco Queen as Michael Jackson was King of POP

4 Dancing Queen - ABBA

Great song. But ABBA were never a disco band as some annoyingly describe them. They experimented with their sound to mirror the trends of the time but always did it with their distinctive Nordic twist. Upbeat melodies with underlying melancholy.

Amazing song love it all time favourite! Always been there for me to laugh and sing to best song ever published'!

Dancing Queen is obviously an amazing song, but at this time Abba weren't producing disco music. Their song that is more close to disco is probably Super Trouper

Disco doesn't mean bad... I'm going to turn my house into a public disco and repeat every song by ABBA until I reach my deathbed!

5 Disco Inferno - Trammps

The song that (I think) started the whole thing... Ingenious! And long, not to mention.

"Burn baby burn" Ohh... This is so great to dance to, even if you have more left feet than a Lost Property cupboard. - Britgirl

The 12 inch version remind me of the full Discotheque and people dancing. And that is awesome!

I was a mobile then, couldn't go wrong with this.

6 Le Freak - Chic

It's got an awesome beat! I don't get why more people vote for it! I will survive is ok... but its not as good as Le Freak!

The music, the harmony, and the strong "funk" rhythm, all came together to create an unforgettable sound!

Yeah, this is disco. Kinda cool. Make you wanna dance along with it.

Simply amazing - jay_rh

7 It's Raining Men - The Weather Girls

As long as gay men like to dance, this song will live on

8 Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2 - Pink Floyd

It's a Disco song because it has a Disco beat to it but it's also a Progressive Rock song - christangrant

TOO UNDERRATED AS A DISCO SONG but probably just because is mostly disco rock - PanagosBoi

Never knew it was considered disco?

NOT in a trillion years could this ever be a disco song.

9 September - Earth, Wind & Fire

Just makes you want to shuffle your feet. And original video is over the top!

How's this not in the top ten? This is one of the best and happiest disco songs you'll ever listen to

How is this song so low? It is the defining disco song.

The Newcomers

? Ride on Time - Black Box

I absolutely LOVE this song!


The Contenders

11 Get Lucky - Daft Punk

This is not disco. It's 2013 dance music. To be put on this list it must come from the disco era. I like the song but it's not disco.

DO the kids of today not know what disco is? It actually requires real instruments, and robbie williams shouldn't be on here either! This list is for seventies and early eighties ONLY!

You wanna dance listening to this one!

Well for the kiddies who come to a list for oldies you think Daft Punk is all that. Well here's a song that was released decades before them and guess what may have had influence. Everything comes from something else. "The Voice Of Q" by Q released way, way, way back in 1982.

12 Night Fever - Bee Gees

Best of the best in Disco music!

The beggining of the track is real, real awesome.

13 Funkytown - Lipps, Inc.

I enjoy listening and singing this song

I love this song - BlazingParasol

14 Don't Stop Til You Get Enough - Michael Jackson

Awesome... Makes your heart pump and your booty shake

How is this not number one on this list?

The best disco song in the history of music.. and this song makes me smile a lot, I don't know why! 😁

15 Bad Luck - Harold Melvin & the Bluenotes

Best selling disco record of all time

Bad Luck,is one of my favorite jams,then now & always. I partied like a rock star till the break of dawn.

16 Boogie Oogie Oogie - A Taste of Honey

These two girls could play and this song is so itch scatchingly sexy and funky you just have to dance


17 Hung Up - Madonna

Listen youngsters this is a disco list, songs from the actual disco era. Why are children even looking at this list? It's not a list for them unless they truly like the disco era and have actually listened to music from the time period. Otherwise put modern dance songs on another list and stop messing the list up. Thank You!

For those of us who were there for the disco era are putting classic disco songs on this list. This is from last year. Maybe I missed something?

It is the best Disco song I've ever heard... Please hear it and then vote for the best.. I know you would Love it. The Queen Madonna Rocks

One of the greats

23 Voulez Vous - ABBA
24 Where Have You Been - Rihanna

Why is this here? Thought this was a disco list?

Disco, HUH? Why is this here?

25 Rock With You - Michael Jackson

My 2nd favourite disco song after "don't stop til you get enough"!

Still gets people on the floor

26 Y.M.C.A. - Village People

I agree with the others! There are songs that are not even disco songs placing higher. What gives? To Many youngsters who have no real connection to disco. Disco was from about 73 - 82 and that's pushing it. Anything certainly from the late 80's to today are not disco songs. This should be way higher.

How can this not be in the top ten... It is still incredibly popular with all ages

Greatest disco song of all time.Y.M.C.A. dance still being done more than 35 years later. What other disco song can claim that?

Why is this song not number one? Don’t get me wrong, I will survive is a good song, but this song was the village boys’ biggest hit I think! And it even has a nice dance to go with it.

27 Holiday - Madonna

Are you kidding me? Guys, educate yourself - this song has many disco elements! And what? Disco didn't exist in the 80's? Some people have NO IDEA what they write

Not from the disco era at all.

Great song, but not disco!

This Is The Real Madonna.This Is A Song,All The Original Musicians are Long Gone.Madonna Is Just Hideous Now Like Lady Gaga.The Eighties Were The Best,All The Brilliant Riffs,Melody.Disco Is Best Music Style! Today Is Zero Creativity.
